SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

For the 27th year in a row, hospital patients got to celebrate Halloween in a very special and exciting way with trick-or-treating at the Dwaine & Cynthia Willett Children's Hospital of Savannah.

Joining staff and volunteers, four-legged friends, in costumes, making the rounds from room to room and handing out candy.

"Their job is to make you smile. If you're in the hospital and you're feeling bad, there's nothing better than to have a dog come up to your bedside to be petted,” said Gigi Devitt, with Therapy Dogs International.

"The invitation we get to come up here and do this every year is one of the best things we do every year and we enjoy this probably more than anything else we do throughout the year. It's one of the most rewarding things we do,” said Troy Downen, with Star Wars Consume Groups.

The therapy dogs are on hand at the Children's Hospital every Monday in fact, just not in costumes. Monday, the patients received tons of candy, toys, coloring books and other goodies.
